A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 struck in Pacific Ocean waters off Japan’s eastern coast Thursday, but there was no tsunami danger, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The earthquake, which occurred at 2:04 p.m., was centered 87 miles below the earth’s surface, near the island of Tori-shima, the agency said. Tori-shima is about 360 miles southeast of Tokyo.
